Improvised explosive devices (IEDs) are the weapon of choice for those actively battling U.S. and coalition forces around the world. In fact, IEDs are causing the majority of casualties to U.S. forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. Defeating the IED threat is essential to winning the war on terror. Furthermore, future threats that are overmatched in conventional combat will undoubtedly resort to this asymmetric tactic. Countering the IED threat is and will be fundamental to our nation's security. Towards that end, the Joint Improvised Explosive Device Defeat Organization (JIEDDO) was established. JIEDDO is addressing the IED threat on multiple fronts-from defeating the device, to attacking the network, to training the force.
This project will add to JIEDDO's ability to rapidly and efficiently conduct high-dimensional computations/experiments as part of an analysis campaign-thus enabling broader, more robust analytical support to operators and decision makers. This research will also improve the infrastructure that underpins this class of JIEDDO studies, by improving our ability to rapidly build or extend models and scenarios, conduct computational experiments (through better design of experiments), and analyze/synthesize the output from multiple experimental tools.
